Ranch/Rustic Concrete Style PalettesOutdoor Palette (PDF)
Concrete in rich earth-tone colors and rough stonelike textures contributes to the rustic charm of ranch, farmhouse and country home styles. Using stains and dyes, it’s also possible to “antique” existing concrete and give it an aged, weathered look.

Characteristics of a Country or Farmhouse Style Home

Traditional country or farmhouse plans have a casual appeal often characterized by horizontal lap siding, shutters, a prominent porch extending across the front of the home, and a steeply pitched roof accented by dormers or gables. The cabin, a rustic subset of this style, makes extensive use of natural materials, such as cedar or wood siding accented by stone or rough-hewn timbers.

Concrete Design Ideas

  • These homes evoke a simple, country-style charm best accented by a warm color palette (such as woodsy browns, russet reds and forest greens) and stamped concrete patterns replicating natural materials such as random stone or slate.

  • Indoors, concrete floors stamped with a wood plank pattern—possibly embellished by a cozy stenciled area rug—are a low-maintenance alternative to hardwood floors.

  • Concrete countertops and sinks are ideal for a country-style kitchen, providing functionality, warmth and no-fuss care.
